School History And Tradition

Stella Maris Catholic School was opened in September, 1973 to meet the needs of a rapidly expanding Catholic community in the Dufferin and St. Clair area of west Toronto. The school began with classrooms scattered in three locations: St. Nicholas of Bari Church, St. Clare Catholic School and Richard W. Scott Catholic School. As the numbers grew and with provincial government backing, empty space was made available at Earlscourt Public School. Eventually, a new adjoining building on the Earlscourt site was built. Stella Maris Catholic School now had a permanent home on its present site. The persistence of the Catholic parents, the dedication of the school staff, and the foresight and vision of Monsignor Sbrocchi, the parish priest, made Stella Maris Catholic School a reality.

Today that reality is exhibited at Stella Maris Catholic School by the following:

  • A professional staff dedicated to nurturing all students in  a community of faith and learning
  • A code of conduct, shaped by Gospel Values, that ensures a positive, welcoming and safe learning environment
  • A partnership with St. Clare Church which includes regular participation in Sacramental celebrations and school visits by the pastor.
  • The active engagement of our parent community through the Catholic School Advisory Council in supporting student learning and achievement.
